Symantec Veritas NetBackup is vulnerable to command chaining, which may allow a remote, authenticated attacker to execute arbitrary commands on a vulnerable system.
Symantec VERITAS NetBackup is a client/server based backup software solution. The NetBackup bpcd daemon fails to properly validate commands. By chaining commands together, an attacker could cause the bpcd daemon to execute arbitrary commands. The bpcd daemon listens on 13782/tcp.
A remote, authenticated attacker may be able to execute arbitrary commands on a vulnerable system with the privileges of the bpcd daemon.
